Leading international oilfield services company Expro has been awarded a contract for work in the North Sea using its ground-breaking AX-S subsea well intervention system.
The well interventions will consist of in-well wireline activity, including production logging utilising a well tractor and subsea tree removal.
This contract is a significant win for the AX-S team as it looks to enhance its life of field vision for subsea developments with its AX-S system. The AX-S system successfully completed its final commissioning in a Norwegian Fjord, in May.
This contract comes as Expro AX-S Technology Ltd was awarded the Offshore Achievement Innovator Award in recognition of AX-S as an innovative technical solution developed for the offshore energy sector.
AX-S is a unique, remotely-operated, inherently safe and cost-effective intervention system, operated from a mid-sized construction vessel. AX-S will change the way in which oil and gas companies can access and intervene on their subsea well assets at any water depth down to 10,000ft.
The AX-S system is now available for commercial use on virtually any subsea well in the world.
Dave Shand, AX-S managing director, said: “After a completely successful trial in Norway, the AX-S system is now ready and we are now in a position to offer AX-S as a safe and cost-effective well intervention life of field solution.
“I am extremely pleased that we can provide BG Group with a solution to their well intervention needs.”
